Volunteer Opportunities Interns work in our courthouse clinics. They work one-on-one with litigants who need assistance preparing their court forms requesting a domestic violence restraining order.  It usually takes about an hour to complete a litigant's paperwork.  Interns also provide information about the legal process, shelters, counseling and other social services available to victim of domestic abuse.  All intern work is reviewed and approved by an attorney. 

A DASH intern must be able to: work well with people (most of the people we assist are under extreme stress); write clear and concise statements describing the domestic abuse; learn and apply legal rules; and use a computer comfortably.

Newhall School District

We are pleased to announce the addition of new elementary schools to our program. If you are interested in volunteering with any of the schools please contact the principal/teacher listed.

Please keep in mind that it may take a few days for a response to your email/voicemail; the staff at each school site is working hard to find appropriate placements for volunteers and this involves contacting multiple teachers, waiting for teachers to respond to the request; and relaying information back to each student volunteer. Thank you for your patience with this matter and please remember to be courteous and professional with all involved staff members at the school site.

Remember that volunteer opportunities are limited to regular school day hours; if you only have evening and weekend availability, school sites are not a good choice for you.
